Digital Luxury Defines the 2019 Audi A8

From its tapered exterior, large single-frame grille and aggressive Matrix LED headlamps, the 2019 Audi A8 makes a great first impression. Slide in behind the wheel and power on, and the wood veneer of the dash slides back to reveal air vents as the cockpit’s three digital displays come to life. But it’s the driving experience that’s sure to take center stage in this four ringed flagship.

The 2019 A8 will include several firsts for Audi. Among them is a 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain, which will bolster the efficiency of the 340 horsepower TSFI V6 that will be standard fair at launch. It will also power other on-board systems, such as the fully adaptive suspension, which can raise or lower each individual wheel, and four-wheel steering. Two new technologies include Audi AI and Traffic Jam Pilot, the former of which will suggest destinations, stops, and routes based on your preferences. The latter is a semi-autonomous function for slow traffic situations. When engaged, steering, braking, and accelerating can be handled up to 37 mph.

When it arrives in U.S. showrooms next year, the A8 is sure to be a hit. But some of its tech can already be found on available new Audi models. Contact our Water Mill, NY dealership to learn which features.
